The Best Nude Lipstick for Your Skin Type 2019

The Best Nude Lipstick for Every Skin Type

Today’s nude lip is sophisticated. Finding the perfect nude lipstick shade can be quite an endeavor, especially if your complexion is very pale or very dark. A too dark nude will make you look like you’re still trapped in the 90s, while a too light shade will suck the color out of your face and make you look like the walking dead. The right nude lipstick will balance your skin tone and give you a healthy glow. It can make you look demure or sexy, depending on its tone and finish.

“The most common mistake people make is that they think nude should be nude. Nobody looks good when they’ve completely obliterated their lip and it’s the same color as the complexion,” she says. “You should look alive. You want natural, but a bit pushed with neutral shades.” That’s the whole inspiration behind Armani’s new Lip Maestro Matte Nature range, which includes ten neutral shades created for every skin tone to find a match.

The following is 14 Best Nude Lipsticks for Every Skin Tone:
